Item description for Burning Women: A Global History of Widow-Sacrifice from Ancient Times to the Present by Joerg Fisch...

Burning Women explores how the Indian Hindu custom of sati, or widow burning, has existed in various forms in most parts of the world. The practice of widow-burning combines strong spiritual beliefs in the hereafter with the more secular power struggles of this world, both between the sexes and social groups. Widow burning in India has long been hotly debated, but its practice in other parts of the world has been neglected. Burning Women is the first history of the anthropological, religious, social and political contexts of widow-burning across the world.
